The redesigned Creta now gets new LED DRLs mixed with the ‘Parametric Jewel’ front grille, refreshed LED headlights and a revised front bumper. Thanks to these changes, the front profile seems strongly inspired by the new Tucson.

It additionally gets reworked taillights, thus keeping the side and rear profile largely unchanged. The front, side and rear profile also has heavy silver inserts. The visual improvements are noticeable but retain the silhouette of the pre-facelift SUV.

The cabin of the restyled Creta remains unchanged except for the addition of the Alcazar’s 10.25-inch digital dashboard. The interior is finished in an all-black theme that is only offered with the DCT turbo variants in India.

Another notable addition to the Creta is ADAS (Advanced Driver Assistance Systems). ADAS in the Creta includes features such as forward collision prevention, blind spot monitoring and collision prevention, rear cross traffic alert, lane keeping assist, monitoring driver attention and autonomous emergency braking. It is highly likely that the ADAS will be transferred to the Indian spec model, as its big rival, the MG Astor, is the only one in the segment that currently offers it.

The Indonesian-spec Creta features an 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay (the Indian model is expected to continue with its 10.25-inch unit), connected car technology, cruise control, a wireless phone charger, ventilated front seats, panoramic sunroof, air purifier and eight-speaker Bose setup. Safety is also covered by the tire pressure monitoring system, hill start assist, rear vision monitor and up to six airbags.

The Indonesian-spec Hyundai Creta is powered by a single 115bhp 1.5-liter petrol engine, mated to a 6-speed manual gearbox and CVT. As for India, it will additionally be offered with 1.5 liter 115 hp diesel engines and 1.4 liter 140 hp turbo petrol engines. The restyled Creta in India could also be equipped with the iMT (manual transmission without clutch) associated with the 1.5-liter petrol unit.

Hyundai is expected to launch the restyled Creta in India in 2022. It will charge a premium on the current price range of Rs 10.16 lakh to Rs 17.87 lakh (ex-Delhi showroom). The SUV rivals the Maruti Suzuki S-Cross, Kia Seltos, Renault Duster, Nissan kicks, Volkswagen Taigun, Skoda Kushaq, and MG Astor. Its wide price range also places it at the same level as Tata harrier, Mahindra XUV700 and MG Hector
